The Country House is also available for functions and weddings.

Accommodation consists of six beautifully appointed and individually designed rooms and suites in the historic Manor House and one free standing thatched cottage, all reflecting the Cape Dutch elegance of the buildings with 21st century comfort and 5 star luxury. Interiors have been carefully chosen to suit the style, with a subtle use of technology. The rooms are spacious and equipped with the finest materials, linen and amenities giving an instant homely feel.

The Cape Winelands are popular for "good food & wine", and at Grand Dédale we strive to live up to this promise and exceed every expectation. Our specialties include wholesome Cape-style dishes with the emphasis on game and seafood, prepared by our local resident chef. All ingredients are fresh and locally sourced ensuring a truly African feast with every meal.

Start your day with a sumptuous "Cap Classique" breakfast with a range of homemade treats such as freshly squeezed juices, homemade jams, exotic fruit slices and fruit salads, as well as freshly baked breads, rolls, muffins and croissants, homemade mueslis, healthy cereals and yoghurts. In addition we offer a mouth-watering selection of cooked dishes. Light lunches and snacks are served throughout the day.

There are many beautiful picnic spots on the Estate and the surrounding areas. Pack your blanket, a good book and one of our delicious picnic baskets and you are perfectly equipped for a lazy day out in the mountains or by the beach. For the active hiker or mountain biker we also have picnic backpacks available which can be filled with carbohydrate-packed snacks. Please order your picnic basket a day in advance.

In the afternoons we serve a high tea buffet with freshly baked delicacies.

Sunsets in the Winelands are magical, leaving the mountains dipped in shades of orange and purple. At Grand Dédale we celebrate this event with sundown pre-dinner drinks on the veranda or by the pool. On cooler evenings we serve the aperitif in the library in front of the fireplace.

During this occasion our guests have the opportunity to taste Doolhof’s award winning wines and make their selection for dinner. This is followed by a three course table d’hôte menu, prepared by our local resident chef. Emphasising game and seafood, all ingredients are locally sourced and prepared in a Cape idiom.
